An effective alternative to guardianship for individuals with developmental disabilities.
Parents, guardians, advocates, educators, attorneys, judges, and other stakeholders are invited to attend a FREE informative presentation on Supported Decision Making.
Jonathan Martinis is the Senior Director for Law and Policy for the Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University.
Jonathan has over twenty years’ experience representing people with disabilities to protect their legal and human rights, including precedent-setting cases securing access to critical community-based services. In 2013, Jonathan represented Margaret “Jenny” Hatch in the “Justice for Jenny” case – the first trial to hold that a person has the right to use Supported Decision Making to make her own life choices instead of being subjected to a permanent, plenary guardianship.
